MANILA - It appears all is well between Sarah Geronimo and Maja Salvador, nearly a month after the pop star confirmed that she is in a relationship with the actress's ex-boyfriend Matteo Guidicelli.
Photos of Geronimo and Salvador backstage during last Sunday's episode of "ASAP" are now making the rounds online. One shows the two smiling as they hug, while another shows them holding hands while posing for a picture.
The moment backstage was not the only interaction between the two last Sunday. In a segment that appeared to assure fans of their good ties, Salvador and Geronimo made an impromptu mash-up of their respective hits, "Dahan-Dahan" and "Ikot-Ikot," while doing spiels introducing the next number.
Only hours after the live episode of "ASAP," Salvador had a live interview on "The Buzz" wherein she maintained that she is not only in good terms with Geronimo, but with Guidicelli as well.
"Makikita mo sa lahat na happy lahat," she said.
The relationship of Geronimo and Salvador, who co-starred in the 2006 TV series "Bituing Walang Ningning," had been the subject of speculation due to their respective ties with Guidicelli and actor Gerald Anderson.
Anderson reportedly started courting Salvador, who is now his girlfriend, not long after he admitted that he had stopped pursuing Geronimo, with whom he co-starred in two films in 2011.
When the first reports romantically linking Anderson and Salvador surfaced in January 2013, Geronimo herself made headlines when she talked about "womanizers" on her live musical TV show. She later apologized for "misbehaving" and alluding to Anderson.
In an interview in October 2013, Salvador said she would not be surprised if Guidicelli ended up with Geronimo, noting that the two were previously linked before their relationship.
Geronimo was paired with both Guidicelli and Anderson in the 2011 film "Catch Me, I'm in Love." At the time, Guidicelli was openly expressed his admiration for the pop singer.
